Marley is a Bombshell Black German Shepherd Available for Adoption in Newburgh, IN
It's a well-known theory that black dogs are passed up more than any other color at shelters. Many shelter workers believe it's because Hollywood portrays them as the "bad guy" in movies and that they aren't as photogenic as other colors.
First off, that's just stupid. I have a tiny black dog that looks like a mean little ankle-biter but he's truly the sweetest. And my thousands of photos would suggest that he's not only photogenic but downright handsome!
Another black doggo that's drop-dead gorgeous is also adoptable! Her name is Marley and her chocolate eyes and tan highlights offset her sleek black coat. Marley is an almost three-year-old female German Shepherd mix that weighs 67 pounds and has been at WHS since August. Her Petfinder profile says that she's friendly and sweet and good with other dogs.

Do you have a dog or cat due for vaccines? The WHS is excited to announce that they received another grant from Walmart Giving to host a low-cost vaccination clinic open to the public on November 29. The clinic is from 11AM -2PM (or later if pets are still being seen). Registration begins at 10AM and ends at 1PM. Registration is limited to the first 50 dogs or cats, and registration for the clinic is first come, first serve.
Please expect a potentially long wait, and plan your day accordingly. They can only see domesticated dogs and cats. No feral animals. For the safety of your pet, all dogs MUST be on a leash and cats MUST be in a carrier to be seen.
